What is meant by structured finance?

Structured finance is a form of financing that is individually tailored to the needs of your company. These structures create room for you to operate in order to successfully realise your corporate goals. Economic, balance sheet and tax aspects are all taken into account.

Which clients can benefit from our structured finance products?

Our structured financings are best suited for companies with a turnover of around 50 million euros or more. But even below that, an individual solution can make sense. We will find out together with you.
